The Autobiography of John C. Van Dyke: A Personal Narrative of American Life, 1861-1931
Van Dyke is known for The Desert and other books on the American West, for his friendships with the prominent men of his time--among them, Theodore Roosevelt, Mark Twain, and James A.M. Whistler-- and for his art criticism. His autobiography, recently discovered in a Victorian farmhouse in Cranbury, New Jersey, is made public for the first time, edited and with an introduction by Peter Wild (English, U. of Arizona).
